Leaf shutter needs to be free from oil and dirt and not damaged. needs to be cleaned with a solvent. everyone i have encountered uses ronsonol to clean - but first you have to get the camera apart. on some range finders there is a way to manually close the shutter, then you can put a few drops of the solvent on it and try and fire the shutter a few times... good luck - and look up info on "cleaning leaf shutter" if you want more info

Cant open Kalart 4x5 Camera


Kalart is the brand of the rangefinder not the camera. A speed graphic normally opens by pressing a concealed button located on the top of the camera middle front. Suggest you also check out the website Graflex.org for further info and shooting tips.

When I put memory stick from my sony DSC W5 into my computer all the photos show. when in the camera half of them are missing and file error shows on camera screen any ideas?


Common error, can be caused by altering images or editing in the computer, then saving the images back to the memory stick, the camera cannot read the edited images or sort out changes that may have been made to the file allocation table on the stick. Download all the images to the computer, back the images up to a disc, flash drive or another hard drive. Then re-format the memory stick in the camera before using it again. The image "workflow" fr digital photography intends for the camera to PC path to be a one way street.

My d55irxt camera will not go to main menu mode,why?


I originally thought the same thing when it was brand new. I called Moultrie and was told...

1. hit the 'mode' button once to bring up date time selection
2. use the arrow keys to find the menu you want to edit
3. hit the 'enter' button.

If that doesn't work.... then I'm not sure. :0)

How can i turn on my camera? what is the problem


FIRST YOU NEED TO DETERMINE WHICH MODEL CANON R.F. BODY YOU HAVE. THEN I WOULD SUGGEST A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL TO HANDLE THIS REPAIR. SOME OF THE INTERNAL COMPONENTS WERE ACTUALLY HAND-CRAFTED WHEN THESE CAMERAS WERE MANUFACTURED 60 YEARS AGO, AND NONE BUT A TRAINED ONE COULD HANDLE THIS.

How do you load film into a Leica111a


Leica IIIc was made for many years. the bottom of the camera comes off by twisting the flip style finger shackle. The film take up spool must be removed to attach the film to it. pull the film out at the same whidth of the camera and insert. It seems like a tetious task although owning a Leica makes it well worth it
